Returning to Newcastle for the first time since 2012 is Irish pilot Gerry Humphreys who has made a big name for himself with his fantastic displays in his Vans RV7 aircraft which has been named ‘The Flying Cow’ due to its unique paint scheme which is similar to a cows white and black.
EI-HUM Flying Cow has been a regular throughout Ireland for many years and EI-HUM Flying Cow also flies a mini Mig aircraft. Though it is unknown to me which aircraft he will be bringing to Newcastle on 11th August.
Gerry Humphresy is an ex RAF Harrier Pilot and qualified aeronautical engineer who built EI-HUM himself . He is very experienced with over 9500 hours logged in more than 90 different aircraft types.
Now, as well as running a farm Gerry flies professionally for Pacnet Air, a private aviation company based in the Isle of Man and is also a flying instructor with both the Atlantic Air Academy in Cork and the Limerick Flying Club at Coonagh where he taught his son Harry to fly. Gerry also flies seaplanes and he is a director of the Foynes Flying Boat & maritime museum.
